Eyelids are apples
sliced to moon crescents.
Pips fall
on cold floors
and won't be flowers,
not ever.

from Fantasy (for Madge Gill, 1884-1961)

Adele Geras is best known as a writer of children's fiction. She is also a painter - with pigment and with words. She says of her poems that they are the images she is incapable of painting. Interiors, tapestries, embroideries, and fabrics of all kind obsess her, but there is also running through her work, a sense of the surreal and a gentle irony.
